Boobs. Oh, boobs. Big, huge, giant, round, firm, fallen. They are everything. In "Seikon no Qwaser" and "Manyuu Hikenchou" put aside the characters, disregard the poor plot, despise the median animation, and don't pay attention to the weak soundtrack. Be boobs being stolen or boobs being sucked, these two animes idolize and abuse of this female body part.
Excluding the strong ecchi content, they are nothing more than a bad and forced comedy. But in the case of these two animations, it would be stupidity expect something more ...
Both have boobs as the main theme
In Manyuu Hikenchou, big boobs are the source of status and wealth
In Seikon no Qwaser, boobs are the source of superpower
Both constantly toss boobs in your face and both are made by the same studio unsurprisingly.
Both have, ecchi, samurai, martial arts, action, fantasy and magic genre.
Both features, fanservice and BOOBS and Panty shots.
Both were set in an alternate Japan.
Both have chiquitas (main female lead) who were either ditzy, retard or stupid.
Both have main female characters who welds a samurai sword.
Though, both animes have fanservice in them, one is more of panty shots while the other has more to do with BOOBIES.
In MH, has an extra yuri genre while HRSG, has harem as its extra genre.
In HRSG, there is a muchacho who seems to exercise some form of influence with his harem, while in MH it is the chiquita (female lead) with big bouncing BOOBIES who is the head of the duo.
Also, the muchacho (male lead)in HRSG may be a samurai himself however he is seldom seen engaging in combat, while in MH it is the sidekick ( the one with the flat chest) who rarely gets into a fight.
Both were set in the early part of historical Japan.
Both have ecchi, history, martial arts, action, parody and magic genre.
Both involves a main female character who is a skilled swordsman (or woman for that matter).
Both female characters wear little or skimpy clothing.
and there the usual fanservice and there is your typical yuri.
One involves BOOBS, BOOBS and BOOBS, while the other one is more on the exotic sexy side.
The chiquita (female lead) in MH weals a traditional samurai sword, while the chiquita (I'm referring to Oda Nobunaga) in SOMP weals a rather long and big broad sword.
MH is more of a duo of former clan members who broke away from the clan to do something good for everyone......I think. while in SOMP it involves a ditzy chica (girl) who got into somewhat of weird situation where she has to help a chiquita ( Oda Nobunaga) to conquer the whole of Japan in a noble way........I think.
The fanservice in MH is more intense than SOMP. read more
If Bikini Warriors is Monalisa then Manyuu Hikenchou is The Birth of Venus. Such was the level of artistry that these two masterpiece anime depicted. If you're looking for the pinnacle of oppai drawing in anime, look no further than these two works of art that will stand the test of time.
Both series have a lot of fanservice (NSFW) but also some funny moments as well and some entertaining fight scenes. The first episode of each series might seem to imply that the whole show has excessive violence, but it's not as bad as some reviews say it is.
Both involves chicks who can kick ass and with big boobs, BOINK! BOINK!
Both shares the same shojo, action and ecchi genres, BOINK! BOINK!
Both main chicks has a side kick who joins them in thier journey, BOINK! BOINK!
MH has an extra martial arts, samurai, yuri and history genre, While Grenadier has adventure and comedy as its extra genre.
In Grenadier the chick has 2 side kicks, one is a man and one is a kid, while MH only has her loyal aide as her sidekick.
When it comes to being seen naked, the main chick in MH is very much reluctant unless it's lady and if she's ever seen naked it is always accidentaly, while in Grenadier, the main chick has no hesitation to be seen naked wheather accidental or not.
The feamle sidekick in MH has hots for the main chick and would often grope her breast whenever the main chick least expect it, while in Grenadier, the guy (side kick) would avoid getting close to the main chick, the kid (side kick) since it is a girl prefers to be close to the latter (main chick).

Both are erotic anime starring an attractive blue haired girl who is the successor of a skilled warrior clan. Both girls have a sidekick who pervs on them (Kaede and Nin-Nin) for comic relief. La Blue Girl is straight up hentai and while Manyuu Hikenchou has sexual situations it only shows boobs. Tons of them, though. I think if you like one you would like the other for sure.
Both these shows make me laugh because I find their fanservice so ridiculous. In both cases, I'm pretty sure the creators intended the self-parody, which makes both great fun for anyone who can appreciate that kind of humor. (...not absolutely sure though, which is part of the fun.)
For Manyuu Hikenchou, even the title falls into the ecchi silliness. If you'll forgive my (less than perfect) Japanese, I might translate Manyuu as "demon(ic) boob" and Hikenchou as "secret sword book". Think Jim Carey as the Riddler: "Was that over the top? I can never tell."
Cross Ange also derives humor from its title, but in a different way (watch the end of episode previews for that).  read more
